Would an incremental introduction or a far reaching introduction be likely to ensure their successful establishment? Karl Fitzgerald on August 20, 2019 at 10:25 am Good question Matt. Our recent Stamp Duty to Land Tax report focused on a three year implementation plan where significant improvements are likely to occur in the one election cycle. I prefer this more accelerated adoption so that benefits can be felt in time for the likely scaremongering campaign (rather than the 20 year ACT transition). As stated in that report, we could halve payroll tax if the land value tax is kept at 0.74% across residential owner-occupied property. Perhaps with the increased automation of the mining sector a government could one day offer significant company tax cuts in lieu of a more meaningful Resource Rent system (one without such elaborate depreciation allowances). Land Value Capture is already common parlance in policy circles. Read this article we were quoted in for the best system to fund congestion busting infrastructure. The big issue is breaking it down for the everyday person. How to reach the Herald Sun reader. Any tips?
